Donna Elaine Marklund Sunday, 20 Oct 2019

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Donna Marklund on Saturday, October 20th, 2019 at the age of 73 years. Donna was born in Saskatchewan on May 19th, 1946. She attended high school in Tumwater, Washington and then eventually moved to Surrey and then to Merritt where she raised her family and spent the rest of her life. In Merritt she enjoyed working as a secretary for 30 years at the high school. She treasured all her time spent with family, especially with her children and grandchildren. She was always excited to attend holiday events and family reunions to keep up to date with all her relatives. She always enjoyed baking, gardening, and camping and fishing with her family. Donna was predeceased by her mother and father, Philomene and Leonard Myrfield and her brother, Milton Myrfield. Donna is lovingly remembered by her husband Leonard, children Rod (Lynnette), Linda, and Dave (Karen), her grandchildren Tristan, Elijah, Alyssa, Ryan, Kendra, Damien, Oriel, Vienna, and Wesley, and her two siblings, Warren (Virginia) and Debbie, and many nieces and nephews and other relatives. We would like to thank the staff of Kamloops Royal Inland Hospital in the ICU for their care and kindness to Deanna and family during her time there. There will be a graveside service held October 26th, 2019 at the Pine Ridge Cemetery in Merritt at 12:00pm.
